Review for BIG FUN Education, Madison, CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am an author and educator with over twenty years of experience in alternative education. In all that time I have never seen a more effective alternative education program as Big Fun Education. Not only does it make education fun, it inspires creativity and brings students from around the world together through its use of modern technology.

Last spring my son had the opportunity to participate in Big Fun Education's "Macbeth Goes Social" along with students from around the United States and Italy. The program inspired students to act out scenes from Macbeth, cook the food from the play, and incorporate Shakespeare's lines into a comedy routine. My son and I thoroughly enjoyed watching the fruits of their creativity. My son was then inspired to research the food of the time period on his own.

Big Fun Education's new program, "Reading Without Borders" brings authors together with students from around the world. The Hangouts on Air used by Big Fun Education provides a rare opportunity for both the authors and the students. Reading and writing are usually solitary experiences, but through programs like Reading Without Borders, people come together to learn from each other.
